I wish I could get it, haha. I really want to go SLI. But this gives me the opportunity to spend my tax return on something else. I guess I'll just build a home theater PC.

It can handle it. It would be under quite a lot during intensive games. But, it would work fine. Considering I don't really overclock my CPU anymore and I am only running 1 hard drive at the moment.

Wait, isn't a 650 Watt PSU more than enough to run a GTX 260 Core 216? I thought that card could be run on a 550 Watt with no problem.

Oh thanks. I didn't catch that. So my 550 Watt is going to be enough?
